MOSCOW, August 29 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has sent two planes to the Tver region to put out a wildfire that started on Sunday, a source from the ministry’s information department told Tass on Monday.
Be-200 and Il-76 planes with firefighting equipment to dump water began their work in the region at 7:35 am, Moscow time, the source said. EMERCOM specialist Kirill Nevsky said the forest fire began near the settlement of Selishche, Kimry district, on Sunday. About three hectares are engulfed in flames. “There has never been such a fire in the Tver region,” he told Tass, saying that most likely it as a man-caused fire.
The fire has been localized and specialists expect to put it out during the day. A total of 150 people fight the fire.
